Welcome to the Mae on Cascade

JNS recently celebrated the completion of the Mae on Cascade, a striking new multifamily project in the shadow of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs. 

Named for Fannie Mae Duncan, the Mae takes inspiration from its namesake while also paying tribute to her social work. Fannie Mae was a jazz musician and owner of the famed Cotton Club in Colorado Springs in the 1950s. She welcomed anyone into her club that was age 21 or older, regardless of race – a rarity in that time.

DoubleTree Cherry Creek Hotel Completes Renovation

JNS recently completed the renovation of a 270-room hotel in Denver’s Cherry Creek neighborhood. Our team provided architecture and interior design services for the hotel, which was converted from a Holiday Inn to a DoubleTree by Hilton. The re-brand meant upgrading the hotel’s interior to match the new flag and creating a space befitting Cherry Creek’s upscale aesthetic.

Visitors to the hotel are greeted with a porte cochere and beautifully renovated lobby with access to meeting spaces, a pool area and workout room, as well as other amenities.
